My contract is up for renewal and the iphone comes highly recommended but also taken by the HTC, Sony Experia and the Samsung Tocco.

Any advice greatly appreciated, abuse even more so

Wait for the Iphone 5 and get that...Samsung NO Sony NO HTC def NOT

It will do what you have stated and do it all well...Atm the HTC has a better camera but it wont have once the IP5 is released

HTC have some serious software problems. Avoid.

HTC and Samsung are very good. I have had an HTC phone for three years now and have had no problems. Also the developer community is very good at keeping these phones up to date, long after they have been forgotten by the manufacturers. The best of the bunch )at the moment are the Samsung Galaxy II and the HTC Sensation. The Sensation has now been upgraded to the Sensation XE with a more powerful 1.5GHz cpu making it the most powerful on sale in the UK (as of next week). The Iphone 5 is yet to be announced but whatever it's specification it is likely to cost you significantly more per month.
Go down to somewhere like carphone wharehouse and have a play side by side, then come home home and try and batter your current phone provider down on price.

Here is your starter for ten:

The new HTCs are proving to be something of a 'mare, as Dinger has stated. iPhones are just shit. Newer BlackBerry models aren't great in some cases either. My advice is buy a used, older BlackBerry, like a 8310. Bombproof. Or, as a left-field choice, I scored a Spactard Monkeychild K888 Super Fried Wasp Chinese iPhone copy and it's bob on. Camera ain't great, but does email, Internet, music etc. And takes 2 SIMs. My Doris drowned it one evening in some white wine muck and it still worked after a period of rehab under a lamp.

What the **** is an I-Phone?

No iphone five for quite a while, the 4.x will replace the 4.

If you're not brilliant with smart phones, and want easy to use/set up, then iphone 4 is ideal. If you want more options and like customising, then go Android with Samsung or Sony.

I have had no problems with my HTC, I quite like it. I wouldn't fart on an IPhone, my IPOD Touch is enough to show me that it would be shit. What is with itunes and wanting to erase my IPOD?

Having previously road tested Blackberry & Iphone, the latter wins hands down however it's personal preferance,

I agree the iphone is'nt perfect but outclasses the Blackberry, HTC & similar platform phones.

I started with an iPhone, then went to a Blackberry Curve and then a HTC Wildfire and am now back with an iPhone 4. The iPhone out classes Blackberry and HTC in my opinion.

I keep reading that the iphone5 is imminent.

It's the usual Apple release mechanism. Rumours get out about 3 or 4 weeks before the announcement, then there's the announcement, followed by the actual product availability. Lets them build up demand, sell off the old stock at reduced prices normally, and kick off the new product with great sales figures. Great business plan to me.
Hmm ok. I'll be waiting for one of them but I'll not pay through the nose.

There's your problem. You don't authorise your computer for the iPod to sync with. You authorise the computer to sync with your account, and then you sync the mobile device (iPod, iPad, iPhone) with the computer. If it was previously synced with another account, it will wipe the device before syncing. You probably haven't got the same content on the two computers, or have got the sync settings to be different. It's very flexible, but at the end of the day, they're just computers and will do what you tell it to. In this case, you told it to wipe the iPod.
I have only ever had one account though. I just de-authorised the computer and then authorised it with the account, and it still wants to erase and sync the thing. I don't get a choice to sync the mobile with the computer..or should I say sync the IPOD to the computer.
If I erase and sync, do I lose my contacts and schedules in the IPOD? I am not bothered about the songs or apps as I have copied the songs using SharPod and I have transferred the purchases from the IPOD.


Its gonna even more confusing when I connect my IPOD nano thing.

Forget the IPhone it's way behind the other top phones on the Market and has been since the arrival of the HTC Desire a long time ago. The IPhone 5 is well in the distance as well, the next release is the IPhone 4S.Which has basically a better camera and a couple of tweeks with HSDPA support.
For all the bells and whistles your probably looking at the HTC Sensation or the Samsung Galaxy SII, my missus has the SII and it easily outclasses my HTC Desire. As soon as I'm able I'll be changing to one.
